    Canada IP battlelines: "plagiarized" report, piracy "guesses"

    What is going on in Canada? This week, a prestigious research group recalled a series of intellectual property reports that were highly favorable to copyright holders—and appear to have been plagiarized. And the Business Software Alliance admitted that its Canadian software piracy numbers were "estimates"—no surveying had been done in the country.

    Both discoveries were made by law professor Michael Geist, a one-man IP wrecking ball. First up was a report from the Conference Board of Canada, a nonpartisan research group that was asked to produce a report on the digital economy. When the report in question came out, the press release trumpeted, "Canada seen as the file-swapping capital of the world."
